Are you already planning where you want to live next year? You can choose West Campus Apartments and sign up this semester!
We offer an early room selection process during the fall semester. You'll have an opportunity to choose a room at WCA and not have to choose a room in the spring. One major benefit to signing up now is that you will pay this year's room rate next year. If our room rates increase, yours won't as long as you remain at WCA!
Current WCA residents: do you want to choose to live in the same room next year?
All other SUNY Cortland students or current WCA residents wishing to move to another WCA location:
Fill Out Your RSP Form (view screenshots)
Yes, but you don't have to pay until the spring semester. Deposits will be due no later than 4 p.m. on May 1.
Spaces are typically limited at WCA during RSP. If you know you want to live at WCA next year, sign up this semester. Last year, most who wanted to live at WCA and waited until RSP were not able to choose a room there.
Yes, during RSP in the spring. If you switch to a room that is not at WCA, you will lose the guarantee on the lower room rate.
No. Not only is the room rate $40 cheaper than a standard double and $665 cheaper than a designed single, you are not required to have a meal plan. Living at WCA can save you over $2,000 on your SUNY Cortland bill.
Yes. WCA is open for the entire academic year. As long as you are returning in the spring semester, you can stay at WCA even during the winter break! This is a great option for student teachers or those with jobs in the area.
WCA only has single rooms available. You will share an apartment with three others, but have your bedroom all to yourself. And it's cheaper than a single in a residence hall!
No! In the event that your friends decide to move somewhere else, we will not make you move out or require you to find new roommates. Once you have chosen your room it is yours for the following academic year- as long as you pay your deposit.
If you currently live in an apartment with an RA or one of the following buildings, you will have to choose another room at WCA during the second portion of the Guarantee. Restrictions include:
Apartments with RAs:
If you do not require on-campus housing next year for any reason (met requirement, withdrawing, transferring, internship, student teaching, etc.) complete the Release from Housing form for Fall 2017 available in the spring semester. Follow the same steps as the Fill Out Your RSP Form section.

All housing processes will take place from The Housing Director page. To access anything housing-related, complete the following steps:
To live in a double room, you will be required to choose a roommate to select a room with. If you do not know who you would like to live with, you will have an option to search for others or you can opt to be assigned by Residence Life and Housing staff.
It is possible that someone else may choose your room/suite as you are selecting. If this happens, you will receive a message that this has happened. Search for another room.
You are only able to change your assignment. Your roommate will have to make changes separately. Complete the same steps as listed in "Choose Your Room."
